POLICE AND MUNICIPAL COURTS. 



Inve.stlgation of a Controversy between the State's At- 
torney and the Supt. of Police. 

The Committee on Police and Municipal Courts sub- 
mitted the following report, which was, on motion of 
Alderman Steffen, deferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, December 5, 1921. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Y'our Committee on Police and Municipal Courts, to 
whom was referred (November 23, 1921, page 1312) 
an order directing the Committee on Police and 
Municipal Courts to make an investigation of certain 
charges alleged to have been made by the State's 
Attorney against the Superintendent of Police in his 
administration of the Department of Police, having 
had the same under advisement, beg leave to report 
and recommend that said order be placed on file, for 
reasons set forth in the following resolution, adoption 
of which is hereby recommended: 

Whereas, The State's Attorney of Cook County 
has on several occasions publicly made charges that 
open prostitution, gambling and other forms of 
vice have existed in Chicago with the knowledge 
of the Superintendent of Police of the City of Chi- 
cago, and that the Superintendent of Police has 
not only failed to suppress such prostitution, 
gambling and vice after their existence had been 
specifically called to his attention, but that he had 
attempted to prevent the State's Attorney from 
taking action which would result in the sup- 
pression of such vice and gambling; and 

Whereas, When the Committee of Police and 
Municipal Courts had under consideration the mat- 
ter of the advisability of conducting an investi- 
- gation of the said charges made by the State's At- 
torney, the State's Attorney made the statement 
that he would not present to the Committee on 
Police and Municipal Courts any evidence in sub- 
stantiation of charges made by him, for the reason 
that he does not consider the committee a proper 
body to conduct such an investigation, but that, in 
his judgment, the proper body to conduct such an 
investigation is the Grand Jury of Cook County and 
that such evidence as he has or may hereafter re- 
ceive on the subject of charges made by him will 
be presented to a Grand Jury at a proper time; 
and 

Whereas, Additional charges were made against 
the Department of Police by Alderman Arthur

River, lying approximately parallel to the Chicago 
Drainage Canal and between Hoyne avenue and 
Kenton avenue dt that City; and 

Whereas, This stream serves no other purpose 
at the present time than to carry the sewage which 
is emptied into it to the Chicago Drainage Canal, 
and on account of the low velocity of the water it 
becomes stagnant and is a menace to health; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has built five 
bridges over this stream during the past six years 
at a cost of approximately $155,000.00 and will be 
called upon in the future, as development takes 
place in this vicinity, to build five additional 
bridges which will cost about $200,000.00, and be 
further subjected to considerable annual main- 
tenance expense; and 

Whereas, This stream is not navigable and 
divides property belonging to private individuals 
and corporations, thereby hindering the develop- 
ment and necessitating the expensive construction 
and maintenance of railway bridges, and consti- 
tutes a general nuisance and menace to the neigh- 
borhood; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Commissioner of Public Works 
be and he is hereby directed to prepare the neces- 
sary plans and estimates of the cost of taking care 
of sewage and drainage now provided for by the 
West Fork of the South Branch of the Chicago 
River, with a view to filling this channel and to

of property abutting on same; and, be it further 

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be sent 
to the Congressmen representing the several Con- 
gressional Districts within the City of Chicago and 
to the two United States Senators representing the 
State of Illinois in Congress, for the purpose of 
soliciting their co-operation in the framing and 
passage of any legislation, by Congress, which may 
be necessary to enable the City of Chicago to fill 
either all or a part of this channel; and, be it 
further 

Resolved, That the Committee on Efficiency, 
Economy and Rehabilitation and the Committee on 
Judiciary of the City Council be directed to take

1911 (wluud tax), provides tliat motoi' trucks, trail- 
er's, ,inot()i' i;oacb(!S and motor bus(!s shall pay an

complaints from the owners of the small motor buses 
and coaciies that it is inequitalile tn charge them tin;

such, as for instance, as are opei'ated by the Chicago

These complaints appear tu me to bi' Justilieil, and

feet above datum. 

The above elevations as fixed shall be measured 
from Chicago City datum as established by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago. 

The roadway of said East and West 87th street be- 
tween said points and also the roadways of all in- 
tersecting streets and alleys extended from the curb 
line to the street line produced on each side of said 
East and West 87th street between said points (ex- 
cept the intersection of South Park avenue with East 
87th street and except the intersection of South State 
street with East and West 87th street and also ex- 
cept the center .sixteen (16) feet of East and West 
87th street occupied by street railway) shall be so 
graded that after being thoroughly puddled and rolled 
with a roller of ten (10) tons weight until the road- 
beds a*re thoroughly compacted and after the pave- 
ment hereinafter described shall have been placed 
thereon, the surface of the pavement on each side of 
and adjoining the center sixteen (16) feet of East and 
West 87th street occupied by street railway shall 
be at the elevation of said street railway and the sur- 
face of the pavement at the center, of the finished 
roadways of all intersecting streets extended from the 
curb line to the street line produced on each side of 
said East and West 87th street shall be at the eleva- 
tion of the top of the curbing hereinbefore descrih;> 
and the surface of the finished roadways at the sum- 
mits in the gutters between catchbasins and adjoin- 
ing the roadway face of the curbing shall be two (2) 
inches below the top of said curbing and the surface 
of the finished roadways at the catchbasin inlets in 
the gutters adjoining the roadway face of the curb- 
ing shall be eight (8) inches below the top of said 
"curbing. 

The slope of the gutters adjoining the roadway 
face of said curbing shall be uniform from the sum- 
mits to the catchbasin inlets, and a transverse sec- 
tion of the finished sarface of the pavement where 
the roadway is not occupied by street railway 
shall be an arc of a circle passing through the 
said gutter elevations and the elevation of the center 
of said finished roadway, and a transverse section 
of the finished surface of the pavement where the 
roadway is occupied by street railway shall be an 
arc of a circle passing through the said gutter ele- 
vations and the elevation of the street at each side 
of said street railway at every part of said East 
and West 87th street and at every part of all inter- 
secting streets between said points. 

In all intersecting alleys hereinbefore specified at 
the street lines produced of said East and West 87th 
street the surface of the finished pavement adjoining 
the curbing shall be even with the top of the curb- 
ing, and the surface of the finished pavement at the 
center of the roadway of said alleys shall be three 
(3) inches below the top of the curbing, and a trans- 
verse section of the finished surface of the pavement 
at the street lines produced of said East and West 
87th street shall be an arc of a circle passing through 
the surface of the pavement adjoining said curbing 
and the surface of the pavement at the center of said 
finished roadways. The surface of the said pavement 
thence shall slope gradually to meet the gutters here- 
inbefore specified. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared between said 
points shall be spread a layer of Portland cement 
concrete six (6) inches in thickness. Said cement 
shall be so ground that ninety-two (92) per cent 
will pass through a standard iiumber one hundred 
(100) sieve having ten thousand (10,000) meshes per 
square inch. 



Briquettes made from a mortar composed of one 
(1) part said Portland cement and three (3) parts 
torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of limestone screen- 
ings, free from dirt, dust and other impurities, ex- 
posed to the air for one (1) day and immersed in 
water for six (6) days, shall develop an ultimate 
tensile strength of two hundred (200) pounds per 
square inch. 

One (1) part cement which will stand the above 
test and comply with the above requirements, and 
three (3j parts of torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of 
limestone screenings, free from dirt, dust and other 
impurities shall be thoroughly mixed dry and then 
made into a mortar with the least possible amount 
of water. Seven (7) parts of the best quality of slag, 
limestone or other stone, which shall be equal in 
quality for concrete purposes, of a size that will pas> 
through a ring of two (2) inches internal diameter 
and be held on a ring of one-half (%) inch internal 
diameter, all of which slag or stone shall be thor- 
oughly cleaned, free from all foreign substances and 
drenched with water, shall then be incorporated im- 
mediately with the mortar. 

Each batch of concrete shall be thoroughly mixed 
and at once spread upon the surface of said road- 
beds and thoroughly compacted by ramming until 
free mortar appears on the surface. 

Upon the concrete foundation herein specified 
granite headers shall be set on edge along lines 
parallel with and eight (8) feet from the center line 
of said East and West 87th street with their length 
parallel to said center line of said East and West 
87th street. Said granite headers shall be of the best 
quality, of uniform texture, without lamination or 
stratification and free from an excess of mica or 
feldspar. Said granite headers shall be four (4) 
inches in width, ten (10) inches in depth and not less 
than two and one-half {2V2) feet in length. Said 
headers shall be so constructed that the top of the 
same shall coincide with the surface of the finished 
pavement herein described. 

Upon the concrete foundation herein specified ex- 
cept that part occupied by granite headers shall be 
spread a layer of torpedo sand, limestone screenings 
or slag screenings in such quantity as to insure when 
compacted a uniform depth of one (1) inch upon 
which shall be laid the brick pavement. 

The brick shall be vitrified paving brick, and shall 
be thoroughly annealed, tough and durable, regular 
in size, and shall be evenly burned. When broken the 
brick shall show a dense and stone-like body, uniform 
in color inside, free from lumps of uncrushed clay, 
lime, air-pockets, cracks or marked laminations. Kiln 
marks or surface cracks must not exceed three-six- 
teenths (3-16) of an inch in depth. The dimensions 
of the brick shall be the same throughout the entire 
work, and shall be four (4) inches in depth, not less 
than eight (8) inches in length and three (3) inches 
in thickness.

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement, or 
other finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement, for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course, shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude native solid asphalt is used and 
requires refining it shall be heated to a temperature 
of not over four hundred and fifty (450) degrees 
Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have been 
driven off, at least ninety-eight and one-half (98% "i 
per cent of the bitumen contained in the said refined 
asphalt which is soluble in cold carbon disulphide 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
refined asphalt used in making said asphalt cement 
may also be obtained by carefully distilling Galifornia 
or Mexican petroleum with steam agitation, at a 
temperature not to exceed seven Inuidred (700) de- 
grees FahrenheK, until (he refined asphalt has a 
consistency not softer than seven (7) millimeters 
penetration and not harder than three (3) niiliimetcrs 
])enetration, the penetration being made with a No. 
2 needle, weighted wi(h one hundred (100) grams 
acting for five (5) seconds, on the material being 
tested at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-half (98%) 
per cent of the said refined asphalt, so obtained, shall 
be soluble in carbon tetra chloride. If less than 
ninety-nine (99) per cent of the said refined asphalt 
is soluble in carbon tetra chloride, then the said re- 
fined asphalt shall yield, upon ignition, not more than 
fifteen (15) per cent of fixed carbon; if ninety-nine 
(99) per cent or more of the said refined asphalt is 
soluble in carlioii Idra chloride, it shall yield, upon 
ignih'on, not inore than eighleen (18) per cent of 
fixed carbon. When for(,y (40) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter and is held at 
a temperature of three hundred anrl twenty-fivo 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it 
shall have lost not over five (5) per cent by weight 
and the penetration of the residue thus obtained sliall 
be not less than one-half of the penetration before 
such heating, said penetration being determined as 
herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall 



have a ductility of thirty (30) centimeters at five 
(5) millimtitei's penelr'ation determined as herein 
presci'ibed, said du(;tility being determined by 
elongating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined 
asphalt at a uniform rate of one C/entimeter per 
second at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahi'enheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement may 
he a parafiin residuum, a semi-asphaltic residuum or 
an as[)haltic residuum of petroleum which shall be 
tested with and found suitable to the refined asphalt 
to be used. Ninety-nine (99) per cent of the said 
flux shall be soluble in carbon tetra chloride. The 
paraffin residuum fiux shall have a specific gravity of 
ninety-two (.92) " hundredths to ninety-four (.94) 
hundredths at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit, as compared with water at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit; and wlien tested in a New York 
State Closed Oil Tester it shall not fiash below a 
temperature of three hundred and fifty (350) de- 
grees Fahrenheit; and when twenty (20) grams of 
the said paraffin residuum flux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches 
in diameter and is held at a temperature of three 
hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost over 
five (5) per cent by weight. The said semi-asphaltic 
residuum flux shall have the same general char- 
acteristics as the said paraffin residuum flux, except 
that it shall have a specific gravity of ninety-four 
(.94) hundredths to ninety-eight (.98) hundredths 
at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit, as compared with water at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and it shall have a 
viscosity co-efficient, at two hundred twelve (212) 
degrees Fahrenheit, of less than sixteen (16) com- 
pared with water at sixty-eight (68) degrees Fahren- 
heit, as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. 
The said asphaltic residuum fiux shall have the same 
general characteristics as the said paraffin residuum 
flux, except that it shall have a specific gravity of 
ninety-eight (.98) hundredths to one and ten (1.10^ 
hundredths at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit, as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (771 degrees Fahrenheit, and shall 
have such properties that when the said asphaltic 
residuum fiux is evaporated, at a temperature of not 
to exceed five hundred (500) degrees Fahrenheit, to 
a. solid of five (5) millimeters pen(d,ration, deter- 
mined as herein prciscribed. then, it shall have a 
ductility of thirl,y '(30) centimeters, determined as 
herein prescribed. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall bo made from said re- 
fined asphalt or asphalts, and said flux if 
fiux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
refined asphalts shall contain equal parts of 
each of the refined asphalts and that the 
said asphalt cement shall contain at least 
fifty (50) per cent, by weight, of refined asphalt or 
asphalts. Asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux shall be 
used when the weight of flux required in making the 
asphalt eenieni, prepared fi-om refined native, solid 
asphalts exceeds by weight twerd.y-five (25) per cent 
of the asphalt cemenf,. The said asjthalt cement shall 
be made by mixing and healing (he said refined 
asphalt and the said fiux in a ketde at (emperatures 
not lower than (wo hundred and fifty (250) degrees 
Fahrenheit and not higher than three htuidred and 
seven(,y-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit. This mix- 
ture shall be thoroughly agilated, when hot, by 
steam, or mechanical means, until the said mixture 
has become homogeneous. The said asphalt cemeni, 
shall have a penetralion, deternu'ned as herein pre- 
scribed, oF no(, less than three (3) millimeters and

Whereas, There, is, within the limits of the 
City of Chicago, a stream of water known as the 
West Fork of the South Branch of the Chicago 
River, lying approximately parallel to the Chicago 
Drainage Canal and between Hoyne avenue and 
Kenton avenue of that City; and 

Whereas, This stream serves no other purpose 
at the present time than to carry the sewage which 
is emptied into it to the Chicago Drainage Canal, 
and on account of the low velocity of the water it 
becomes stagnant and is a menace to health; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has built five 
bridges over this stream during the past six years 
at a cost of approximately $155,000.00 and will be 
called upon in tlie future, as development takes 
place in this vicinity, to build five additional 
bridges which will cost about $200,000.00, and be 
further subjected to considerable annual main- 
tenance expense; and 

Whereas, This stream is not navigable and 
divides property belonging to private individuals 
and corporations, thereby hindering the develop- 
ment and necessitating the expensive construction 
and maintenance of railway bridges, and consti- 
tutes a general nuisance and menace to the neigh- 
borhood; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Commissioner of Public Works 
be and he is hereby directed to prepare the neces- 
sary plans and estimates of the cost of taking care 
of sewage and drainage now provided for by the 
West Fork of the South Branch of the Chicago 
River, with a view to filling this channel and to 
secure the necessary frontage consents of owners 
of property abutting on same; and, be it further 

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be sent 
to the Congressmen representing the several Con- 
gressional Districts within the City of Chicago and 
to the two United States Senators representing the 
State of Illinois in Congress, for the purpose of 
soliciting their co-operation in the framing and 
passage of any legislation, by Congress, which may 
be necessary to enable the City of Chicago to fill 
either all or a part of this channel; and, be it 
further 

Resolved, That the Committee on Efficiency, 
Economy and Rehabilitation and the Committee on 
Judiciary of the City Council be directed to take 
such steps as may be necessary to accomplish the 
purpose of this resolution.

"Filliny Stations" for the Sale of GasoUue, Etc.: 
Changes in License Fees for tlie Sale of Kerosene. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
(ion, which was referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Fire Department of the City op Chicago,1 

Bureau op Fire Prevention and Public Safety, j- 

Chicago, December 28, i92i.J 

To the Honorable the Mayor and the City Council: 

Gentlemen — Referring to an ordinance passed by 
your Honorable Body, December 22, 1919, appearing 
of record on page 1611, Council Proceedings of said 
date, regarding filling stations and providing an an- 
nual license fee of $3.00 for kerosene where the total 
capacity does not exceed 100 gallons. 

During the year this bureau has issued approxi- 
materly 2525 clearances for licenses to sell kerosene. 
. These clearances covered license periods for three, 
six, nine and twelve months, respectively. 

I particularly desire to call your attention to the 
experience of this bureau with the class of applicants 
for these licenses. It was made up generally of men 
and women of the poorer class who operate little 
stores in districts where there is no gas or electricity. 
Many an applicant was a widow with a babe in her 
arms and sometimes an additional two or three chil- 
dren very young and poorly clad; likewise, similar 
cases of married women, spinsters and men and 
women unable to do physical and hard labor. 

It seems to me very unjust to tax or license this 
class of people, for the reason that in most cases a 
license is also exacted for the sale of milk and gro- 
ceries. So many other businesses do not pay any kind 
of a city license fee or tax; and, if they do, com- 
fiaratively little at that. T refer particularly to fire- 
bveeding hazards which require constant inspection 
by this bureau and which hazards are more parti- 
culai'ly referred to in a revision of llie Fire Preven- 
tion Ordinance now pending betoi'e a committee ol' 
your Honorable Body. 

While this proposed revised ordinance is |»rol;»abl.v 
far from being perfect, I consider it a marked im- 
provement over the ordinance under which we oper- 
ate. It provides for a considerable increase of rev- 
enue to the city as well as a more equitable charge for 
special inspection to reduce fire hazards. 

It does not seem just and edquitable that certain 
classes of business should continually monopolize the 
efforts of the City Fire Department in suppressing 
periodical fires created through lack of proper fire 
prevention methods and (hey not pay tlieir propor- 
tion of tax or fee. Constant inspection of these prem- 
ises would lessen the number of fires. 

It is suggested that this matter be referred to the 
Committee on Buildings and Zoning where other 
amendments are now being considered; and I respect- 
fully recommend that the section of the Fire Preven- 



tion Ordinance requiring a fee for "kerosene onh)" 
be amended to read "when the quantity does not ex- 
ceed sixty gallons." 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John C. McDonnell, 

Secpnd Assistant Fire Marshal, Chief of 
Fire Prevention and Public Safety. 



DEPARTMENT OF POLICE. 



Advancement of Probationary Patrolman Patrick Haran 
for Meritorious Services. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion : 

Office op the Superintendent op Police,] 
Chicago, December 19, 1921. ( 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — About 10:45 P. M., Saturday. Decem- 
ber 17th, Mr. Chas. W. Finnan, a druggist at 1958 
West Grand avenue, was accosted by two young men 
in front of the elevated station at Grand avenue and 
Osborne street, who seized him and attempted to pull 
him around the corner. He broke away and was 
knocked down by one of the men. One of them 
■stooped over him but he scrambled up and ran into 
the elevated station. Probationary Patrolman Patrick 
Haran was just coming out of the toilet of the ele- 
vated station at the time and when he saw Finnan 
without a hat and his face bleeding, ran after the 
men and commanded them to halt, and at the same 
time fired a shot in the air. They did not stop but 
turned north in an alley. The officer fired a shot at 
them and one fell. Ho got up immediately and the 
officer fired again and the man fell a second time. 
Before the man became unconscious the officer asked 
him who was with him and he muttered "Mui'phy." 
He died on the way to the hospital. Francis Mur- 
phy was arrested and identified by Finnan. He con- 
fessed the attempted holdup and identified the body 
as that of Jesse Barrigan. 

In view of the courage and meritorious police work 
by this officer, I respectfully request authority to ad- 
vance him to the second grade. 

Sincerely yours, 

(Signed) Charles C. Fitzmorris, 

Superintendent.

be parallel with and two (2) inches below the finish- 
ed surface of the pavement. 

Upon this binder course shall be laid a wearing 
surface, which shall be composed of asphalt cement, 
clean graded sand and levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes. 
The sand and asphalt cement shall be heated sepa- 
rately to a temperature of three hundred (300) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. The levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes 
shall be mixed with the sand, and these ingredients 
then mixed with the asphalt cement at the above 
temperature in an apparatus which shall effect a 
thorough mixture. This mixture shall be composed 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide — 11.5 per 
cent.; material passing a 200-niesh sieve — 12 per 
cent.; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and retained 
on a 200-mesh sieve — 25 per cent.; material passing

a 40-mesh sieve and retained on an 80-mesh sieve — 
38 per cent.; material passing a 10-mesh sieve and 
retained on a 40-mesh sieve — 12 per cent.; and mate- 
rial passing a 4-mesh sieve and retained on a 10- 
mesli sieve — 1.5 per cent. 

The wearing surface when mixed as above shall 
be spread at a temperature of two hundred and eighty 
(280) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be carefully spread 
to an even surface and to such depth that after hav- 
ing received its ultimate compression it will have a 
thickness of two (2) inches. 

The wearing surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition, shall receive ini- 
tial compression by rolling with a self-propelled rol- 
ler of five (5) tons weight after which natural hy- 
draulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1000) square yards of surface 
shall be swept over it, and the whole then thorough- 
ly compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller 
of ten (10) tons weight, the rolling being continued 
for five (5) hours for each thousand (1000) square 
yards of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the refined asphalt or asphalts and fiux, 
where flux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
the refined asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts ot 
each, and that the total proportion of refined asphalt 
or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement shall not 
be less than fifty (50) per cent, by weight. When 
the weight of flux in the asphalt cement prepared 
from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty-five (25) 
per cent thereof, asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used. The refined asphalt and fiux used in 
preparing the cement shall be melted together in a 
kettle at temperatures ranging from two hundred and 
fifty (250) degrees to not over three hundred and 
seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit, and be 
thoroughly agitated when hot by air, steam or me- 
chanical appliances, until the resulting cement has 
become thoroughly mixed into a homogeneous mass. 
The agitation must be continued during the entire 
period of preparing the mixtures. The cement shall 
always be of uniform consistency and if any portion 
should settle in the kettles between intervals of us- 
ing the same it must be thoroughly agitated before 
being drawn for use. The asphalt cement shall have 
a penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit, of from thirty (30) to one hundred (100) de- 
grees, which shall be varied within these limits to 
adapt it to the particular asphalt used in the paving 
mixture and to the traffic and other conditions of 
the street. When forty (40) grams of the asphalt 
cement of the consistency used in the paving mixture 
shall be heated for five (5) hours at a temperature 
of three hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fah- 
renheit, in a tin box two and one-quarter (2%) in- 
ches in diameter, there must not be volatilized more 
than five (5) per cent, of the bitumen nor shall the 
penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit after such heating be less than one-half of the 
original penetration. A briquette of the asphalt 
cement of the consistency used in the paving mixture 
shall have a ductility of not, less than ten (10) centi- 
meters. 

The refined asphalt used in inakiug the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 
asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty (450) degrees Fahrenheit un- 
til all water and light oils have been driven off. At 
least ninety-eight and one-half (981/2) per cent, of 
the contained bitumen in the refined asphalt wliich 
is soluble in cold carbon disulphide shall be soluble 
in cold carbon tetra chloride. 



The refined asphalt may also be obtained by the 
careful distillation of California or Mexican petro- 
leum with steam agitation, at a temperature not ex- 
ceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, un- 
til the resulting residue has a consistency not softer 
than seventy (70) degrees penetration and not harder 
than thirty (30) degrees penetration. The solid re- 
sidue so obtained shall be soluble in carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent. If the solubility in carbon tetra 
chloride of the solid residue is less than ninety-nine 
(99) per cent., the bitumen shall yield upon ignition 
not more than fifteen (15) per cent, of fixed carbon; 
if the solubility is ninety-nine (99) per cent, or more, 
the bitumen shall yield upon ignition not more than 
eighteen (18) per cent, of fixed carbon. When forty 
(40) grams of the material are heated for five (5) 
hours at a temperature of three hundred and twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fahrenheit in a tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, it shall lose 
not over five (5) per cent, by weight nor shall the 
penetration after such heating be less than one-half 
of the original penetration. The refined asphalt shall 
have a ductility at fifty (50) penetration, of thirty 
(30) centimeters. 

The flux may be a paraffine, a semi-asphaltic or 
an asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall bo 
tested with and found suitable to the asphalt to be 
used. All fluxes shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-nine (99) per cent. 
The paraffine residuum shall have a specific gravity 
of ninety-two hundredths (0.92) to ninety-four hun- 
dredths (0.94) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. It shall not flash below three hundred and 
fifty (350) degrees Fahrenheit when tested in a 
New York State Closed Oil Tester, and shall not 
volatilize more than five (5) per cent of material 
when twenty (20) grams are heated five (5) 
hours at three hundred and twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit in a tin box two and one- 
quarter (2%) inches in diameter. The semi- 
asphaltic residuum shall have the same general 
characteristics as paraffine residuum, except that it 
shall have a specific gravity of ninety-four hun- 
dredths (0.94) to ninety-eight hundredths (0.98) at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall have 
a viscosity coefficient at two hundred and twelve 
(212) degrees Fahrenheit, of less than sixteen (16), 
as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. The 
asplialtic residuum shall have the same general char- 
acteristics as paraffine residuum except that the spe- 
cific gravity shall be not less than ninety-eight hun 
dredths (0,98) nor more than one and ten~hundredtbs 
(1.10) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 
The asphaltic residuum shall he evaporated, at a 
temperature not exceeding rwf^. hundred (500) de- 
grees Fahrenheit, to a solid of fifty (50) penetration. 
It shall have a ductility at fifty (50) penetration of 
thirty (30) centimeters. 

The roadway of said Norwood Park avenue be- 
tween the southeasterly line of Nettleton avenue pro- 
duced southwesterly and a straight line drawn across 
and at right angles to Norwood Park avenue inter- 
secting the northeasterly corner of Raven street, and 
also the roadways of all intersecting streets extend- 
ed from the curb line to the street line produced on 
each side of said Norwood Park avenue between said 
points, shall be so graded that after being thorough- 
ly puddled and rolled with a roller of ten (10) tons 
weight until the roadbeds are thoroughly compacted 
and after the pavement hereinafter described shall

each of said above specified streets, shall be at the 
elevation of the top of the curbing hereinbefore de- 
scribed; and the surface of the finished roadways at 
(he summits in the gutters between catchbasins and 
adjoining the roadway face of the curbing shall be 



three {',]) inclios below the top of said curbing, and 
the surface of the finished roadways at the catch- 
basin inlets in the gutters adjoining the roadway face 
of the curbing shall he ten (10) inches below the top 
of said curbing. 

The slope of the gutters adjoining the roadway 
face of said curbing shall be uniform from the sum- 
mits to the catchbasin inlets, and a transverse section 
of the finished surface of the pavement and gutters 
shall be an arc of a circle passing through the said 
gutter elevations and tlie elevation of the center of 
said finished roadways, at every part of the road- 
way of each of said above specified streets, and al 
every part of the roadways of all streets intersecting 
the several streets specified above, between the points 
hereinbefore described. 

In all intersecting alleys hereinbefore specified at

curbing and Ihe surface of the pavement at the 
center of said finished roadways. The surface of 
the said pavement thence shall slope gradually to 
meet the gutters hereinbefore specified. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared between said 
points and between said gutters shall be spread a 
layer of Portland cement concrete six (6) inches in 
thickness. Said cement shall be so ground that 
ninety-two (92) per cent will pass through a 
standard number one hundred (100) sieve having 
ten thousand (10,000) meshes per square inch. 

Briquettes made from a mortar composed of one 
(1) part said Portland cement and three (3) parts 
torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of limestone screen- 
ings, free from dirt, dust and other impurities, ex- 
posed to the air for one (1) day and immersed In 
water for six (6) days, shall develop an ultimate 
tensile strength of two hundred (200) pounds per 
square inch. 

One (1) part cement which shall stand the above 
test and comply with the above requirements, and 
three (3) parts of torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of 
limestone screenings, free from dirt, dust and other 
impurities, shall be thoroughly mixed dry and then 
made into a mortar with the least possible amount 
of water. 

Seven (7) parts of the best quality of slag, lime- 
stone, or other stone which shall be equal in quality 
for concrete purposes, of a size that will pass through 
a ring of two (2) inches internal diameter and be 
held on a ring of one-half (%) inch internal dia- 
meter, all of which slag or stone shall be thoroughly 
cleaned, free from all foreign substances and 
drenched with water, shall then be incorporated im- 
mediately with the mortar. Each batch of concrete 
shall be thoroughly mixed and at once spread upon 
the surface of said roadbeds and thoroughly com- 
pacted by ramming until free mortar appears on the 
slirface. The surface of said layer of concrete shall 
be parallel with and three and one-half (3%) inches 
below the top of the finished pavement. 

Upon the concrete foundation as above specified 
shall be laid a binder course, composed of asphalt 
cement, gravel or clean broken limestone of varying 
sizes which will pass through a ring of one (1) inch 
internal diameter and clean hard grained sand of a

size that will pass a four (4) mesh sieve and be 
retained on a two hundred (200) mesh sieve. 

The gravel or stone and sand shall be heated and 
thoroughly mixed with asphalt cement in such pro- 
portion that the resulting mixture shall contain by 
weight five (5) per cent, of bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide, twenty-five (25) per cent, of sand and 
seventy (70) per cent, of gravel or stone. This binder 
shall be spread on the base above described and 
while in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled 
to an even surface, and after having received its 
ultimate compression, shall be of a thickness of one 
and one-half (1^/2) inches. The upper surface shall 
be parallel with and two (2) inches below the 
finished surface of the pavement. 

Upon this binder course shall be laid a wearing 
surface, which shall be composed of asphalt cement, 
clean graded sand and levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes. 
The sand and asphalt cement shall be heated sep- 
arately to a temperature of three hundred (300) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. The levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes 
shall be mixed with the sand, and these ingredients 
then mixed with the asphalt cement at the above 
temperature in an apparatus which shall effect a 
thorough mixture. This mixture shall be composed 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide— 11.5 per 
cent.; material passing a 200-mesh sieve— 12 per 
cent.; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and retained 
on a 200-mesh sieve — 25 per cent.; material passing 
a 40-mesh sieve and retained on an 80-mesh sieve — 
38 per cent.; material passing a 10-mesh sieve and 
retained on a 40-mesh sieve — 12 per cent.; and ma- 
terial passing a 4-mesh sieve and retained on a 10- 
mesh sieve — 1.5 per cent. 

The wearing surface when mixed as above shall be 
spread at a temperature of two hundred and eighty 
(280) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be carefully 
spread to an even surface and to such depth that 
after having received its ultimate compression it wj,!! 
have a thickness of two (2) inches. 

The wearing surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition shall receive 
initial compression by rolling with a self-propelled 
roller of five (5) tons weight, after which natural 
hydraulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1,000) square yards of sur- 
face shall be swept over it, and the whole then 
thoroughly compressed by rolling with a self-pro- 
pelled roller of ten (10) tons weight, the rolling be- 
ing continued for five (5) hours for each thou- 
sand (1,000) square yards of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the refined asphalt or asphalts and flux, 
where flux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
the refined asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts of 
each, and that the total proportion of refined asphalt 
or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement s'hall not 
be less than fifty (50) per cent by weight. When 
the weight of flux in the asphalt cement prepared 
from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty-five (25) 
per cent thereof, asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used. The refined asphalt and flux used in 
preparing the cement shall be melted together in a 
kettle at temperatures ranging from two hundred and 
fifty (250) degrees to not over three hundred and sev- 
enty-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit, and be thorough- 
ly agitated when hot by air, steam or mechanical ap- 
pliances, until the resulting cement has become thor- 
oughly mixed into a homogeneous mass. The agitation 
must be continued during the entire period of pre- 
paring the mixtures. Thes cement shall always be of 



uniform consistency and if any portion should set- 
tle in the kettles between intervals of using the same 
it must be thoroughly agitated before being drawn 
for use. The asphalt cement shall have a penetration 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit of from 
thirty (30) to one hundred (100) degrees, which shall 
be varied within these limits to adapt it to the par- 
ticular asphalt used in the paving mixture and to 
the traffic and other conditions of the street. When 
forty (40) grams of the asphalt cement of the con- 
sistency used in the paving mixture shall be heated 
for five (5) ihours at a temperature of three hun- 
dred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit, in a 
tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in di- 
ameter, there must not be volatilized more than five 
(5) per cent of the bitumen nor shall the penetra- 
tion at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit after 
such iheating be less than one-half of the original 
penetration. A briquette of the asphalt cement of 
the consistency used in the paving mixture shall have 
a ductility of not less than ten (10) centimeters. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 
asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty (450) degrees Fahrenheit un- 
til all water and light oils have been driven off. At 
least ninety-eight and one-half (981/2) per cent of 
the contained bitumen in the refined asphalt which 
is soluble in cold carbon disulphide shall be soluble 
in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt may also be obtained by the 
careful distillation of California or Mexican petro- 
leum with steam agitation, at a temperature not ex- 
ceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, 
until the resulting residue has a consistency not 
softer than seventy (70) degrees penetration and 
not harder than thirty (30) degrees penetration. The 
solid residue so obtained shall be soluble in carbon 
tetra chloride to the extent of ninety-eight and one- 
half (981/2) per cent. If the solubility in carbon 
tetra chloride of the solid residue is less than ninety- 
nine (99) per cent, the bitumen shall yield upon 
ignition not more than fifteen (15) per cent of fixed 
carbon; if the solubility is ninety-nine (99) per 
cent or more, the bitumen shall yield upon ignition 
not more than eighteen (18) per cent of fixed car- 
bon. When forty (40) grams of the material are 
heated for five (5) hours at a temperature of three 
hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
in a tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in 
diameter, it shall lose not over five (5) per cent by 
weight nor shall the penetration after such heating 
be less than one-half of the original penetration. 
The refined asphalt shall have a ductility at fifty 
(50) penetration, of thirty (30) centimeters. 

The flux may be a paraffine, a semi-asphaltic or 
an asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall be 
tested with and found suitable to the asphalt to be 
used. All fluxes shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-nine (99) per cent. 
The paraffine residuum shall have a speciflc gravity 
of ninety-two hundredths (.92) to ninety-four 
hundredths (0'.94) at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. It shall not flash below three hundred 
and fifty (350) degrees Fahrenheit when tested in a 
New York State Closed Oil Tester, and shall not 
volatilize more than five (5) per cent of material 
when twenty (20) grams are heated five (5) hours 
at three hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees 
Fahrenheit in a tin box two and one-quarter (2%) 
inches in diameter. The semi-asphaltic residuum 
shall have the same general characteristics as paraf- 
fine residuum, except that it shall have a specific

Protest against the Housing of Stock Yard Employes in 
Packing Houses. 

To the Eoiiorahle, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

We, the undersigned citizens of the City of Chi- 
cago, do very strongly and urgently protest against 
the housing of men and women in the packing houses 
located in the stock yard district, as the housing of 
people in the packing houses under the unsanitary 
conditions which prevail, is bound to create disease 
and pestilence; and 

As you are aware that there are cases of small- 
pox in the territory adjacent to the stock yards 
which may be traced to the conditions existing in 
the packing plants; 

Therefore, we urgently request that you demand 
that the Commissioner of Health order the packers 
to cease housing people in the above-mentioned 
plants. 

Respectfully yours, 
(Names appended) 
Unanimous consent was given for consideration of 
said petition.

TWELFTH WARD. 



Aldermen Germak and Cepak presented the following 
resolution: 

Prevention of Automobile Thefts. 

Whereas, The thefts of motor vehicles in the City 
of Chicago continue unabated; and 

Whereas, By reason of the great number of thefts 
aforesaid owners of motor vehicles residing in the 
City of Chicago are compelled to pay excessive prem- 
iums and rates of insurance for protection against 
automobile thefts; and 

Whereas, Owners of motor vehicles have paid to 
the City of Chicago for motor vehicle license fees for 
the year 1921 a sum of money in excess of two mil- 
lion one hundred thousand dollars, said sum being 
more than one million dollars in excess of that paid 
during the year 1920; and 

Whereas, Owners of motor vehicles are entitled to 
every possible safeguard and protection of their prop- 
erty from the thefts and vandalism; and 

Whereas, It appears that the only effective method 
and manner to be employed in order to successfully 
cope with automobile thieves is to prosecute them 
with the utmost vigor and speed; and 

Whereas, To effect such prosecution special courts 
and an adequate number of judges and prosecutors 
should be provided and established; be it 

Resolved by the City Council of the City of Chicago, 
That the Chairman of the Committee on Police and 
Municipal Courts arrange with all possible speed a 
conference with the Superintendent of Police, 
the State's Attorney of Cook County, the Chief Justice 
of the Criminal Court of Cook County, the Chief Jus- 
tice of the Municipal Court of Chicago, the Chairman

the State of Illinois shall deem it expedient and nec- 
essary to call a special session of the General As-

The, following is said I'esoiuLion as adopted: 

The enactment and passage of the Federal Pro- 
hibition Act has failed to meet with the approval of 
the, gejieral jjublic throughout the country. 

While most comprehensive, drastic and summary 
in its character and .scope, efforts to enforce same at 
vast public expense, has utterly failed to obtain and 
secure for it due and proper respect and obedience on 
(he part of the people. 

Abundant statistics of unimpeachable nature fully 
and conclusively dcmons(,rate the fact that the gen- 
eral public is opposed to existing prohibition laws 
which deprive people in the natural and customary 
use and consumption of stimulating beverages. 

A general survey of conditions throughout the 
country suggests a reasonable and liberal modification 
of prohibition laws which will permit the manufac- 
ture, sale and distribution of wholesome beers and 
light wines. Be it therefore 

Resolved, That it is the sense of the City Council 
of the City of Chicago in meeting assembled, that the 
Congress of United States of America and the State of 
Illinois, amend and modify existing prohibition laws 
under their respective jurisdiction and within then- 
proper powers which will permit the manufacture, 
sale and distribution of wholesome beers and light 
wines, and that all governmental revenue derived 
from such permission be set aside as a separate fund 
for the payment of bonuses to ex-service men; be it 
further 

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be trans- 
mitted to each of the following named officials by 
the City Clerk of the City of Chicago : 

To the President of the United States Senate, the 
Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United 
States, the Governor of the State of Illinois, and to 
the President of the Constitutional Convention of the 
State of Illinois. 

That in the event the Governor of the State of Illi- 
nois will call an extraordinary session of the General 
Assembly, he shall include and make a part of such 
call the subject matter expressed in and by this reso- 
lution. 



Claim of the Rose Packing Co. 

Aldermen Cermak and Cepak presented a claim of 
the Rose Packing Company for a refund of license fee, 
which was 

Referred to the Committee on Finance. 



Alderman Cermak presented the following order, 
which was ordered published, and consideration of 
which was deferred: 

Contract witli South Park Commissioners for Purchase 
of Land Necessary for the West Approach to the 
Proposed Viaduct at South Park Av., E. 23rd St. and 
the I. C, R. R. 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public Works 
and the Comptroller be and they are hereby author- 
ized and directed to enter into a contract, on behalf 
of the City of Chicago, with the South Park Com- 
missioners (a municipal corporation, etc.), by which 
the land necessary for the west approach to the pro- 
posed viaduct at South Park avenue. East Twenty-

Park Comtnissinners and the money paid therefor may

substantially the following form: 

This Agreement, Drawn in duplicate and made 

and entered into this day of 

A. D. 192. ., by and between the South Park Commis- 
sioners, a municipal corporation, and the City of Chi- 
cago, a municipal corporation, witnesseth : 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, on July 21, 1919, passed a certain ordinance en- 
titled, "An Ordinance for the Establishment of Har- 
bor District Number Three; the Construction by the 
Illinois Central Railroad Company of a New Passenger 
Station; Electrification of certain of the Lines of the 
Illinois Central and Michigan Central Railroad Com- 
panies within the City; and the Development of the 
Lake Front," which said ordinance was afterwards 
duly approved by the Mayor of the City of Chicago 
and accepted for and on behalf of the said South 
Park Commissioners and also accepted by the Illi- 
nois Central Railroad Company, a corporation of the 
State of Illinois, whereby the said ordinance became 
and was and still remains effective and binding on 
the City of Chicago and on the said corporations so 
accepting the same; and 

Whereas, It is provided in and by the said ordi- 
nance that the South Park Commissioners shall con- 
struct and maintain at its own expense a viaduct 
across the right-of-way and lands of the Illinois Cen- 
tral Railroad Company near East Twenty-third street, 
with easterly and westerly approaches thereto, along 
an extension of what is to be known as South Park 
boulevard, and it was further provided by Section 6 
of said ordinance that the City of Chicago should 
provide at the expense of said City areas constitut- 
ing public streets upon which the inclined approach 
to said viaduct from the west should be constructed, 
and. further that the cost of acquiring additional 
property, if any, necessary for the construction of 
such inclined approaches toward the west for said 
Park approaches described in Clause "f" of Section 5 
of said ordinance shall be borne by the City, whereby 
an obligation was created on the part of the City of 
Chicago to furnish the said areas and to bear said 
cost; and 

Whereas, The said South Park Commissioners 
have proceeded with the work connected with the 
improvements described in said ordinance, and the 
plans of said iSouth Park Commissioners have so far 
matured that it is ready to construct the said via- 
duct and approaches thereto, and the work on same 
would be hindered and delayed if the City of Chicago 
did not forthwith furnish the areas necessary for the 
westerly approach thereto; and 

Whereas, It is of great importance to the public 
that the said viaduct and approaches thereto should 
be constructed withdut delay, in order that an addi- 
tional outlet for vehicles to and from the south side 
of the city be opened up; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has made no ap- 
propriation for the purchase of the land necessary 
to be secured for said areas which it has obligated 
itself to supply, and will have no means of furnish- 
ing the money for the purpose of making said pur- 
chases or securing the condemnation of land until a 
valid appropriation can be made therefor, while the 
said South Park Commissioners have the present nec- 
essary fmancial means to secure the same and are 
willing to make an advancement of such funds for 
that purpose, provided they will be reimbursed for 
same by the City of Chicago when a lawful appro- 
priation for same can be secured; therefore 



It is hereby covenanted and agreed, by and be- 
tween the South Park Commissioners and the City of 
Chicago, that the said South Park Commissioners 
shall forthwith take such steps as may be necessary 
to secure by purchase, condemnation or otherwise, 
and to pay for, the lots, lands or parts of same that 
may be necessary or desirable to provide for the ex- 
tension of South Park boulevard in the neighborhood 
of East Twenty-third street and the Illinois Central 
Railroad Company's right-of-way which, taken to- 
gether with the public land now available, will con- 
stitute an approach of the necessary width and 
length from the west to the right-of-way of said 
Illinois Central Railroad Company for the purpose 
of constructing an approach to the viaduct to be built 
by the South Park Commissioners over the right-of- 
way of the Illinois Central Railroad Company at said 
point; provided, that no purchase of such lands, lots 
or parts of same shall be made unless the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works of the City of Chicago shall 
ibe satisfied that the price to be paid therefor is not 
excessive. 

It is further covenanted and agreed, by and be- 
tween the said parties. That the City of Chicago, as 
soon as it is financially able to do so and can pass a 
valid appropriation therefor, shall reimburse the 
South Park Commissioners for such sum or sums of 
money as it may expend in and about securing the 
necessary areas for the approach to the said viaduct 
from the west, and to pay the same to said South 
Park Commissioners as soon after the making of said 
appropriation as it can legally be done. 

In witness whereof, the parties to this agree- 
ment have caused the same to be signed by their 
proper officers on the day and year first above writ- 
ten.
